Verified Patient Reviews
The front office is well run and very personable. This doctor can improve her "bedside manner" by looking a new patient in the eye and shaking his or her hand to introduce herself. The office offers late afternoon appointments, which makes it convenient. This doctor was not able to recommend a glaucoma specialist, but listened carefully to medical history and made reasonable suggestions. By the end of the appointment, the doctor warmed up and made more effort to "connect" with this new patient.
The assistant was the best part. She was super informative and really taught me about proper technique for caring and wearing contacts.
I was seen in a timely manner. The staff and the doctor were courteous and friendly.
more and more of the exam is provided by low level technicians. The doctor i does bare minimum and seems in a hurry to do the small part of the exam she conducts. She is not a warm person and did not answer questions. Her staff is quite rude however and overall I am on the fence about turning here
It was ok
I will not recommend Dr. Donev but the rest of the staff was very nice
My visit was quick an thorough. I like Dr. Donev. She is knowledgeable and trustworthy. I already have a pair of old screen glasses and she didn't try to sell me contacts or a new pair of glasses I don't need. I appreciated that. You can use your medical insurance for the eye exam because Dr. Donev is an MD.
I wasn't impressed; in fact, I felt rushed and as if my issues/questions were not important.
Great eye doctor. Will always go back.
Helpful, medication is working.
Very professional and detailed
I needed to get have an eye exam for my driver's license renewal and this appointment was thorough yet quick. I've always had good eye sight and hated waiting forever in a waiting room. The facility is clean and quiet, the way a doctor's office should be.
The second (mini ) waiting room was nice to have around.
I was very impressed with the office management and Dr. Donev. The office is very convenient and comfortable. I was impressed with the staff and the on site optical services in the office.
Great job, from all te staff to The. MD
My visit today was very pleasant . Though I had a long wait, my experience was very positive. It started with the assistant who did all the tests. Denise was very knowledgeable and courteous. She answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. Then I waited to see Dr. Donev who was very welcoming and informative. I was very satisfied with my visit today. I will highly recommend their services as of my experience today. I accomplished my goal.
Excellent doctor and friendly helpful office staff!
The receptionists were kind and efficient. There was some 30 minutes waiting time until we were seen. The initial professional was very kind and through. Then Dr. Donev came in the room and did further checking. She is also very kind professional and appears knowledgable. Parking costs $3.00. The office is in a 2nd floor without elevator.
